If you're installing Nterprise Linux Services and it times out looking for the LDAP server, or you get a treename failure, here's a word to the wise.
Make sure the right IP address is specified in the /etc/hosts file.
It might look like the following:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 192.168.80.130 svr1.novell.com svr1
Make sure DNS is configured correctly for your environment.
You can test this by doing a DIG @ipaddressofserver nameofserver (i.e. DIG @192.168.80.130 svr1.novell.com). There should be an ANSWER SECTION with the server name there, and the IP address of that server.
